I know, I know. I have not had time to blog much this year. It happens, right? My life has been SO overbooked this year (that is a whole blog post idea on its own - overbooking ourselves), and something has been needing to change. As most of you know, last year at this time, I announced that I was going back to school. For the past year, I've been working full-time (with a variety of commute times), I began my Pampered Chef business in November 2010 (message me/comment me if you're interested in learning more about the products or business!), and I've been attending school part-time. This was all in addition, of course to various church responsibilities as well as a desire to have some sort of social life (or something resembling one). There were times this past year when I felt like I was barely treading water. I realized that unless something changed, my academic goals were going to be a sort of "someday" hoped for goal, something that might easily fall by the wayside unless something seriously changed. Well. That something is changing. With one of the most ginormous leaps of faith of my life thus far, I have given my notice at my full-time job and in exchange I am becoming a full-time student.
Right?! I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I truly feel like this is the right thing for my life at this time - I've been pondering and praying about it for months upon months, and now it's actually happening. My prayer NOW is that I am able to continue on this path, accomplish my goals and still be able to provide myself with the necessities of life. There is a lot of dark space in front of me yet, but I know that I've been trying to follow the path that God has prepared for me, and as I continue to seek His guidance I will be able to navigate my way through the unknown path ahead of me!
